Module content

In this module we will provide the students with skills to teach and guide a church committee, or elders and deacons. To choose the right people for different committees. We also will look at how to run meetings, plan a programme in the church and organise local fundraising. Students will understand the situation of the church and will be able to make a future planning for a year accordingly and will start writing this future planning in class. How to communicate with a team and listening to the team, or listening during meetings is an important part. How to lead a meeting in practice so decisions can be made and how to guide the decision making process.
